with john mccain . the waning days in the 08 campaign john mccain came out with j the plumber. you remember one of his surrogates and beating up on senator barack obama and only 4000 people fit and democrats said john mccain can't get big crowds and then senator obama was nearby cleveland, the final weekend of an outdoor crowd of 80,000 people . this morning, barack obama is coming to the gym where john mccain and giving you on the perspective of enthusiasm being down. the president will bring out celebrities as he goes with yay z and stevie wonder and bruce springsteen and having concerts and rallis and trying in the early votersing states like ohio and florida and like colorado where their they are getting the early vote out there. and two other thing that is the president is trying to d heh enthusiasm. he is not the candidate of change and mitt romney is the cand date of change. the president bushing back and tough on mitt romney and said he is recycling old failed economic policies of the past . that is one way to push back and number two. president said in states like ohio there is pro
, ed. this moment really reminds me of that moment in 2008 when john mccain had his crazy reaction to the economic crash and wanted to suspend his campaign and go back to washington and looked like he doesn't understand what was at stake. mitt romney looked ridiculous at that rally today. he was talking about cleaning up a football field of rubbiage. and i think it's civilly when you can't play politics. right now, we're having a debate over the future of our society. and things like this disaster relief are really quite pertinent. so it's not that he can't campaign, but go out there and take questions about what you want to do with fema. go out and there and defend your me first, dif involve to the states attitude. but he's scared and e he won't do it. >> this storm really seems to have taken the shirts off a lot of politicians. what we're really making of all of this, here's chris christie in a news conference before the storm yesterday. >> i should call him directly at the white house and he was going to be there and i should just not worry about dealing with anybody else, to ca
, in westchester, ohio. also joining them is condoleezza rice and senator john mccain. that is at 7:30 on c-span. the amount we have to create an environment that our small businesses can thrive. when we look at the uniqueness on the border different from the reform metered -- needed, we need comprehensive immigration reform. we have a work force problem because of our immigration system is broken. we cannot get workers to go back and forth. these problems create an impediment to commerce. we have to provide a workforce that can move back and forth easily, and now we cannot do that because of the impediments that are there by not having an effective immigration policy. that becomes an economic issue. >> some of the issues have to do with what was raised here with regard to be near the border, seasonal work that comes on, and being susceptible to a national trend when it comes to the economy. we need to do things desperately yuma. yuma, one thing we have to avoid is the sequestration that is looming at the end of the year that will hurt our military readiness. for an area yuma, it would be d
polls. what it shows is that john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we're going to pick up pennsylvania. we think we've got a real good shot in virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> here's something interesting as we know now. the president won all those states that mitt romney mentioned, tony. do you think the prediction is going to be a bit better this time around? >> it's not for -- i hope romney isn't making those kind of predictions today. predictions shouldn't be his business. it should be racing as fast as he can across the finish line. but look, campaigns are tough. this one is still really tight. a lot of these races are still really tight. and there are things that none of us know about. polls don't know what turnout is going to be on election day. that's always been traditionally incredibly difficult to predict. and that makes big differences. so we'll see. >> i want to talk about something that we are surprisingly talking about, karen. paul ryan, joe biden both of them h
higher four years ago at 68%. while romney's numbers are considerably better than john mccain's, which were at 38% four years ago. the cheering was deafening at this large obama rally on cleveland's lakefront but many obama supporters say it feels different than four years ago. >> it's seriously just a different kind of excitement. it's more sort of tempered in like reality that this is a campaign, not a crusade. >> thank you. >> reporter: on the gop side, anti-obama sentiment remains a key component of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama out. i do. i absolutely think it's more important to get obama out. >> reporter: clearly mitt romney and barack obama have some complicated relationships with their supporters. but no doubt neither candidate will care as long as the supporters make it to the polls. gary tuchman, cnn, cleveland. >> let's delve into the raw politics with gop strategist mary matalin and democratic strategist, james carville. good evening to you both. james, cornell belcher, the obama 2012 pollster, was
that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized systems are used almost everywhere. we have eliminated paper ballots accept as a backup in case of emergency. we
the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yesterday's gdp report was pretty favorable. the obama campaign saying this is proof that the economy is starting to rebound, but mitt romney in a big speech in iowa on the economy said just the opposite. >> today we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after th
either for john mccain or barack obama in 2008. one entire side of the voting population in this upcoming election is the portion of our country that lives on the edge. as we continue to cope with and rescue people from and now recover bodies from, the impact of this one storm on the most populated part of america's coastline today, the governor of new york state has been again and again trying to draw people's attention to this not being just one event, but a challenge for the whole country that events like this might now be happening with increased frequency. not just in new york, but in all of these heavily populated places, that before now had a fairly predictable relationship with the body of water, with the ocean, that they abut. what is that predictability? that balanced and expectation, developed over the past couple of centuries, and these cities on the water is now over. mostly this gets talked about in terms of the people denying that climate change is a real thing, and big talk about whether we should try to stop climate change and global warming. but that may be getting resol
to retrace my steps to see how it feels now compared to then. it was clear john mccain was toast and the president was going to carry ohio. it's a lot different this year because the romney campaign have enough to get over the top, that's the question we'll answer in the next hundred hours or so, but the intensity at the romney campaign was off the charts. governor romney's expecting some 30,000 people in ohio tonight not that the ohio people aren't working hard, too. they have a very impressive obama operation, but the republican operation compared to four years ago, it's not a comparison. much better. we're going to have an interesting day come tuesday. >> it's going to be exciting for the whole country. >>> last minute moves. a strategy that's either desperate or brilliant, depending on who you ask. mitt romney is making an 11th hour push for pennsylvania. a jackpot with 20 electoral votes. pouring 6 million into the state on advertising. he's never led in a single poll there since he became a nominee. cnn has that in the obama category, but the president's lead has been shrin
in half. i've done some math, can you see where mitt romney makes up some six to eight million votes. john mccain lost by ten million votes, he could pick up a whole bunch of votes in the battleground states. let's go to our battleground map. we have the president winning in virginia, wisconsin is a state that just feels on the ground is something that leans toward the president. now you just give him new hampshire, and he sits at 270, that's with giving romney ohio, that's with giving romney florida. that's with giving him iowa. that's with giving him colorado. that's this issue of the battleground versus the popular vote. >> more to come from chuck todd. thank you very much. we'll be back in a couple of minutes with him. i want to get to our battleground governors in a minute. but i want to start around the table with our roundtail. i mentioned rachel maddow is here from msnbc. carly fiorina, david brooks of the "new york times," ej dionne of the "washington post." i feel like the final stretch is going to be dominated by the fight over the economy. it's what ultimately can tip tha scale
. at least john mccain stood up to the woman who said, obama's an arab, and bill clinton, who's flexible, a pretty good politician said we set up with sister soldier, when he thought those lyrics went too far, hip-hop. >> he thinks only mitt romney can make congress cooperate. and i think this is really a very, very dangerous idea, that unless one side gets its way then they're simply not going to cooperate. i think the public is fed up with this. i think they want congress to cooperate with the new president, no matter who it is. >> this guy mourdock and akin, they're further right than mitch mcconnell. they're going to join the demint crowd. >> they are. and i think the promises made earlier in the campaign will come back -- >> can you comment on your relatives? >> i'm the washington eisenhower -- >> i'm hoping they can join this team. they are great people as are you. great family. susan eisenhower. we'll be right back. you're watching "hardball." u sue you can fit in there?

obama beat john mccain in 2008 in cuyahoga county by a larger number of votes and he won the entire state. so it's really important for cuyahoga county. but a very important place for him to run up those margins. we will see bill clinton campaign up in akron, ohio, even further north and east of cleveland. a high point in this state. >> what we talk a lot about is what we add journalists and the talking class talk about what regular americans, ohio and they're talking about. of all the people i spoke with yesterday, only one person brought up hurricane sandy. a lot of attention was paid to michael bloomberg's endorsement. the big picture, do those kinds of things resinate? do they matter, do you think? >> i think on a text tual level, the message coming out of hurricane sandy was bipartisanship. even if they're not monitoring events as closely here as they are in the east, they're getting kind of a good feeling about the president's ability to work with people on the other side of the section. and as far as mike bloomberg goes, viewish voters are important in ohio and jewish busines
encouraged here. four years ago president obama was beating john mccain 55-40 in this survey, and now romney is leading obama 52-45. andrea, how conclusive? what do you draw from this? >> this is a very big deal. for weeks, bill we've heard the media selling the storyline that supposedly obama is crushing romney in early voting and we see that that is just not true. it shows that he's up seven points. and by the way, bill, that is a 22 point collapse from where president obama was in 2008. bob mentioned the swing states, let's take a look at those. you see that romney is leading in early voting in florida, and in colorado, and leading with absentee ballots in florida and pennsylvania. i would point out with ohio, by the way the president is down 22 million votes and program l 220,220,000 votes. and romney is up 260. this is not good news for obama. >> let's put something in perspective. florida and colorado have already had republican edges in early voting number one. pennsylvania as well, i might point out because democrats vote more on election today. in ohio it's not even close, in terms
with the "washington post" piece. republicans say that romney's team is far ahead of what senator john mccain had in place for years ago. but the extent of the organization and voter contact for the rahm the folks is miles ahead of where mccain was. there is no comparison. given there was a tough primary fight there for the republicans, that possibly they have a better ground game in place than the democrats. guest: that is not true. the democrats and president obama have been on the ground since the primary ended in february. the classic story was he drove through manchester and was locked, shut and the sides were down. the obama campaign was up and running. in knocking on doors, making phone calls. engaged in voter contacts for months and months before the obama campaign came back to new hampshire. i would say the republicans are talking of a good ground game, but the reality is the obama ground game is much better, and that will be a crucial factor when obama wins here next tuesday. host: given that obama won the state in 2008 by nine percentage points, and the economy is not that bad in new h
